Cannot download mission file in Multiplayer + ArmA 3 stops responding afterwards
New, NormalPublic


Upon joining a multiplayer server, it gets stuck on Recieving mission file (0kb/0kb). If I join a server with less players, it would download the first several 100kb until it freezes the game.


Operating System
Windows 8 x64
Additional Information

See attached .rpt files if there is any useful info

I did some research and some forums mention it has to do with the router settings?

Remove that start parameter, its nonsense.

Its possible that your router interprets the flood of incoming messages as a DoS attack and blocks it. And Arma is waiting for the mission file to load and if it just suddenly gets nothing anymore, it gets stuck.
That depends on your router settings though, I cannot help you with that if thats really the cause.

Also there is this in your RPT

14:38:25 Skipping signatures due to overflow flag being set.
14:38:25 Skipping mods and signatures due to overflow flag being set.

Thats not a modded server is it? Looks vanilla to me from the screenshot?

DoS Protection is off.

The server is vanilla, although JSRS Sound Mod is compatible
